ActiveState Careers

ActiveState is celebrating over 20 years of building open source languages. Come be part of something great as we build out our SaaS Platform for open source languages.

As the keeper of the culture at ActiveState, I continuously encourage open and transparent communication throughout the entire company, fostering teamwork, and striving for workplace culture that is purposeful and rewarding. I want to see happy Activators!

“Knowing I have my employer’s trust is a must for me. At ActiveState I’m shown it constantly: from my day-to-day autonomy to our monthly all-hands meetings where we get a detailed look at the company’s plans and finances, that trust is fundamental to our culture.”
